Ulverscroft Grange 7/7

So to finish our visit to Ulverscroft Grange this shot taken of one of the flowers in the garden. You know by now that I am next to hopeless at identifying most species of flower so I will leave you to do that for me.

Looks like you also caught a little critter, either out for a stroll, or contemplating dinner. :o) Nice.
Brian Walbey: Do you know Ray, I hadn't even noticed the little critter, thanks for that. Sorry Jennie, I called you Ray by accident, his name was right below your comment.

Its the famous "perty multi-coloured sprig", Brian...everyone should have a little of it in their garden.
Brian Walbey: It is a nice little flower Ray, Bill thinks it is Mombretia and a Google says to me it is , clever Bill.
very nice DOF Brian

Sorry for my absence this week, was on vacation, but I am back now...
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal, hope your holiday went well.

I find the main stem with its finshed buds a delight.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, that is one reason I included so much of the stem.
Mombretia I think Brian
Brian Walbey: I believe you're correct Bill, a Google shows lots of pictures of this species.
bright image with brilliant colours
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush.
I don't know what species of flower it is, Brian, but I do know it is one that I would love to have growing in my garden.
Brian Walbey: It is Mombretia Beverly, Bill sussed it out and a Google of pictures says it is.

Delightful plant to have in the garden Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes it's very nice isn't it.
Wonderful with the buds Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, it's a lovely little flower isn't it.
Used to have lots of mombretia in the garden but it all seems to have died back.
Brian Walbey: It is a very popular garden plant Tom.

Mombretia are very common in England often lining up the roads - it is fine to display the flower en detail as you did very well!
Brian Walbey: They look nice close in like this don't they.

I think this is Monbretia, too, brian. Very sharp and colourful
Brian Walbey: Thanks Lisl. Monbretia seems to be the general opinion.

Lol, that "critter" comment was from Jennie, Brian :o)
Brian Walbey: Sorry Jennie, a "Senior Moment", they get more regular as time goes by!

Don't look at me Brian, I know less than you do - nice colour though ;o) I'll take yours and Bill's word for it!
Brian Walbey: It seems as though Monbretia is the favourite Mike so let's go along with that.
I love the burnt orange color to this - so lovely - I, too, am pleased that you included so much of the stalk!
Brian Walbey: The stalk helps with the composition I think.
The sort of shot I often attempt, Brian. This is particularly good. I'll have to remember Ulverscroft next time I'm in the area. We quite often have a wander around Leicestershire/Rutland/Northants way.
Brian Walbey: I don't very often do this sort of thing myself Graeme, I was pleased with this one. If you ever come Ulverscroft way let us know and we could join you for a spot of lunch there.
